What if nothing comes from our devotion, effort, faith and work?

Samuel Beckett said:
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.


But...what's the measure of failure? When should we declare 'time-out'?

    Feb 2 2013: Well....after the brain-storm created by your comments I can finally say that the secret is all in a simple action: TO OPEN.


    The Door

    Go and open the door.
    Perhaps outside
    there's a tree, or a wood,
    or a garden,
    or a magic town.

    Go and open the door.
    Perhaps outside
    there's a dog scratching.
    Perhaps there's a face outside,
    or an eye
    or the picture
    of a picture.

    Go and open the door.
    If there's fog outside
    it will go.

    Go and open the door.
    There could be outside only
    singing darkness,
    and there could be outside only
    wind's hollow breath
    and there could be
    absolutely nothing
    outside,
    go and open the door.

    At least
    there would be
    a draught.

      Feb 2 2013: PERFECT concept Gogo....be willing, ready and able to open another door. You have heard the saying.....when one door closes, another door opens? We need to be open minded/open hearted and curious enough to perceive another door opening:>)
